You may need to color your hair before you begin the weaving process if you want to use a weave to cover gray hair temporarily but still keep some of your natural hair out of the weave. Cover gray hair using a formula that covers 75 percent of gray or more. But, do not use products that list ammonia as the main ingredient. Conversely, you should look for product that list water as the first ingredient.
If you plan to use extensions to replace all of your strands, you don’t need to color your hair.
Use a deep conditioner to wash deep condition hair, keeping moisture on your scalp and in your locks.
Use a circular pattern to braid small section of hair into cornrows. Cover hair with a net or wig cap. Keep out portions of your hair that you want to blend with the extensions.
Place the net over your hair, and use it as a guide for placing the hair extensions.
Place an elastic band around the outermost cornrow, and sew the net to your hair’s perimeter.
Sew the extensions into the net, then place and sew these wherever you would like. You can attach a top or closure piece to the crown if you do not wish to sew every piece.
Style new hair. This weave usually lasts for two or three months. You can simply disconnect the weave from the hair line to remove the weave, thus your hair will not suffer from typical damage and breakage normally associated with taking extensions out.
Choose a hair extension that matches the hair color you want. Before deciding on hair extension colors, dye your hair to cover the gray with the help of a professional stylist.
Avoid using nylons to cover your hair.
